The new Voodoo Envy HW:201 notebook PC features a 20.1-inch high-resolution display, and is powered by a 64-bit Turion 64 X2 dual-core processor from Advanced Micro Devices It has two GeForce Go 7950 GTX GPUs (graphics processing units) from Nvidia running in Nvidia SLI (Scalable Link Interface) mode. SLI is a technology introduced by Nvidia that allows two graphics units to run in parallel to produce a single output.

The company has focused on speed and performance, and is positioning the product as an "insanely fast" notebook for the gaming market.

Users can choose between two Nvidia graphics cards, the GeForce Go 7950 GTX with 512M bytes of memory for high-performance PC gaming, or the Quadro FX 2500M with 512M bytes of memory if they are looking for a high-performance portable workstation, the company. Users can also select to use a single graphics card or two graphics cards in SLI mode.

The Envy HW:201 comes with up to 320G bytes of storage using two hard drives. Users can also choose RAID 0 (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) storage, the company said.

With all these features, the new notebook is large and measures 18.75" x 13.5" x 1.9", and does not offer a lot by way of battery life, HP admitted. Other features of the notebook include a Webcam, Bluetooth and 802.11 connectivity, and a theater audio system, HP said. The company did not disclose the pricing of the product.
